Plantain Chips

Plantain chips~ Paleo ~
A common misconception about eating whole non-processed foods is that you either have to give up snacking or learn to enjoy eating carrots and celery sticks – don’t knock ’em until you’ve tried them with almond butter or home made guacamole YUM! I was a long time lover of potato chips (salt & vinegar McCoys were my achilles heel) & thought I’d never find something to replace that deliciously satisfying crunch you get out of a mouthful of chips. There was a deep void in the pit of my stomach until one night I wanted to make ceviche & stumbled across a recipe that included it’s own home made plantain chips. My mind was blown! Healthy chips that were easy to make and that I didn’t have to feel guilty about snacking on. Winning!

Apparently I’ve been neglecting my creative side as another holiday has rolled around without so much as a peep from me. Not only am I ashamed but I’m also terrified by the rate at which this year seems to be slipping away – seriously, I had a nightmare that it was November already! As much as I love the second half of the year for being that much closer to Christmas, I am not about to wish the rest of the year away, I have far too much to accomplish before then!

“Nuts for You!” – Coconut Cashew Butter

Paleo, NSA & Dairy free
When I jumped on board this whole food bandwagon I had no idea that it would open up a world of deliciously indulgent nut butters. I thought they were fattening and bad for you. What’s more, surely they required some kind of high-tech kitchen equipment that I couldn’t possibly afford. It doesn’t happen often but there are those rare occasions when I love it when I’m wrong!
